Over the years, our economy has evolved into a global multidimensional process that has manifested itself in cities through radical changes in human population densities and urban fabric; this has resulted in the rise of post-industrial cities on that complex scenario, how systemic design approaches in post-industrial areas can foster circular economy frameworks to address the current environmental and economic challenges of society? This paper aims to improve comprehension of the post-industrial regions through the lens of systemic design to identify circular economy strategies which are economically self-sustaining. To foster resilient livelihoods for the economic, ecological and social regeneration of deprived urban areas result of deindustrialization processes. To exemplify this, it is intended to examine the case study of the post-industrial area of Mirafiori sud in Turin, Italy.
